Nepal through the window of a Jeep

This is a short video I recorded from the window of our jeep while we drove from the China border to Kathmandu. Nepal is a really great country to observe through the window of a vehicle. All the houses are built right up next to the roads (because the canyons are so steep that there […]

Goat Herding on the Friendship Highway

As we drive along the bumpy gravel track of the Friendship “Highway” between Tibet and Nepal, we are constantly confronted with roadblocks. The most common? Gigantic herds of goats! Apparently, the goats that people eat in Nepal are raised in the grassy plains of Tibet, and then marched along the highway down the steep, precarious […]

Pandas! And some thoughts on natural selection…

I just got back from the Giant Panda Research Center in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China…and holy crap, pandas are cute! The video above shows a few of them munching on bamboo early this morning. But having spent the morning learning about the panda bear, I’ve come to the conclusion that pandas are an anomaly of […]

So I found where all the white people in China go…

Subway. When I arrived in Xi’an, my stomach was a-rumblin’ — and when I spotted the city’s Subway restaurant, I made a b-line for it. I’ve been craving a sub ever since I left the States, and this was the first Subway I’d seen in all of Asia. Upon entering the store, I felt instantly […]

Longest Night Market Ever

China’s got the most diverse array of food in the world, and the Donghuamen Night Market in the heart of Beijing is the largest street food market I’ve ever seen. It took me 12 minutes to walk from one end to the other! Here you can find treats here like fried scorpions, snakes, ostrich heads […]

Hong Kong has the most beautiful skyline in the world

Hong Kong’s skyline is world-famous, and for good reason. It’s one of the tallest, it’s colorful and unique, and it’s got tons of amazing vantage points (these photos were taken from the boardwalk across the bay in Tsim Tsa Shui, Kowloon). And every night at 8PM, there is a light show where the buildings come […]

Taiwanese Bug Safari

Taiwan is swarming with locusts right now, and somebody has to catch them. I went for a walk this morning in Taitung, and stumbled into the Lishu Recreational Area, a little park with the Shinto “Longfong Tower” and a nature walk called the “Liyushan Trail.” The sky was black with locusts buzzing everywhere, and I […]

There are a lot of mopeds in Taiwan

Taiwan doesn’t have biker gangs. Taiwan is a biker gang. Taipei is absolutely swarming with mopeds…it seems like there are more mopeds here than people, and then some. I walked out on a random street near where we’re staying, and recorded a few minutes of video. It’s insane: Pete and I are planning to head […]

I think I’m turning Japanese, I think I’m turning Japanese…

Pete has been singing “I Think I’m Turning Japanese” by the Vapors ad infinitum, so it should probably be posted here, eh? And maybe it’s true, a little bit. I mean, I don’t even think twice about changing my shoes three times to walk through a house anymore.
